Make that 433 years and four months in prison. And add on 21 life sentences, 10 of which that will be served concurrently. That's what the Long Beach Press-Telegram is reporting about today's sentencing of transient Charles Juan Proctor, who was known as "the box cutter" for attacking women working alone in Long Beach businesses. "I can say absolutely ... you deserve each of these 433 years," said the Judge about Proctor's violent attacks and kidnappings. "You shouldn't be on any street in Long Beach and Hawaiian Gardens and, in fact, you ought not be on any street in this country."
